Men and facial plastic surgery? Yes, for self-esteem and career boost

The month of June is designated for men’s health awareness; and for many men, part of taking care of themselves includes making an appointment with their facial plastic surgeon. Yes, really. The number of men having facial cosmetic and reconstructive procedures is steadily growing. Since there is no longer a stigma associated with improving one’s appearance through procedures and minimally invasive techniques, men are having Botox, fillers, nose reshaping, chin fat reduction, blepharoplasty (eyelid surgery), and many more, according to the latest statistics from the American Academy of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery (AAFPRS).

Men state that one of their top reasons for cosmetic or reconstructive surgery is to benefit their career; self-improvement and esteem increase competitiveness in the workplace. Additionally, men want to remain attractive for their significant other. Many male patients request plastic surgery because of their partner having received plastic surgery. They see the positive impact the rejuvenation has had and they want similar results. It isn’t about trying to look like their high school yearbook photo. Instead, they are interested in subtle nips and tucks to look as young as they feel and act.

For example, the AAFPRS reports that eyelid procedures to look less tired are trending among men. They want to look refreshed, energized, and eager to stay in the game.
It is not just the over 40 crowd that is opting for facial plastic surgery, either. There is an uptick in younger men under 35 seeking rhinoplasty, neck liposuction, chin implants, and acne scar reduction procedures, according to AAFPRS annual statistics.

Nose reshaping or rhinoplasty can improve both form and function. The AAFPRS statistics
reveal that men want to look better and breathe better; it?s a win-win either way. There?s also a
fair share of weekend warriors who experience broken noses from sports injuries.

Neck liposuction, chin implants, and new non-invasive options can help shape the chin and jaw area. Strong jaw lines are more attractive and studies have shown that men who have strong chins are more likely to rise up the corporate ladder.

Acne does not discriminate, and acne scars can serve as constant reminders of tumultuous teens for men who suffered from bad acne during their formative years. Fillers, fat, microneedling, lasers, and energy-based devices can be used to achieve smoother skin.

Men are having facial plastic and reconstructive surgery, not only to look better, but also to increase their quality of life. There is no end in sight to this trend; so do not be surprised when your man inquires about making his consultation appointment with your facial plastic surgeon.
